    8-4 Play is pretty good, but also quite long. On the upside they don't usually don't that much about the latest shooter.

    I stopped listening to One Life Left because their shows would go like this:

    News story.
    "I don't know anything about this"
    "I don't know anything about this either"
    "I don't know either, here's a shit joke"

    News story about a game
    "I've not played this game"
    "I've not played this game either, and I wouldn't play it"
    "I know nothing about this game too, here's a shit joke"

    And repeat.

    Giant Bomb might be good, but 3 hour long podcasts???? That's too much. Is there a lot of stupid rambling?
    Yes. I stopped listening to it when I got fed up with listening to the opening 45 minutes of them discussing the pizza toppings they had the night before so they could take about games for 20 minutes before going off on another completely unrelated tangent.
    So it is exactly as I feared. Yeah, anyone can do a podcast that is essentially a recorded small talk session among friends. I am more interested in concise radio style shows with actual content.

    Depends what you're looking for really. If you want 20 minutes of ok this is out this week and thats what we think about it, then yes the bombcast is not for you.

    I want about one hour or a bit more of intelligent talk about videogames with enough humor to make it interesting. I don't want people talking for 3 hours when only one hour of it is videogame related. I also hate podcasts where people constantly get derailed or they don't even know what they are talking about.

    Has anyone mentioned Weekend Confirmed yet? Provided you don't dislike Garnet Lee then it's a really good one. Usually around 2 hours and very little rambling. Can be very funny as well at times.

    I think people are exaggerating the length of unrelated 'banter' of the bombcast. Realistically, they talk about games for 90% of the podcast.

    Their discussion of AC3 and Halo 4 this week was... Extensive.

    By which you mean to say boring and shit?

    I like the bombcast, but then I spend an inordinate amount of time in the car day in day out so long Podcasts suit me.

    Better than 90% of radio at least.

    Hey Tom, I really miss the podcast; any news on when it'll be back on the air? You guys were doing great work. Cheers

    Aww, thanks. Sorry, I really don't know at the moment. Tom B is in the process of reviewing it so hopefully it'll return, maybe with a different format and / or personnel. We'll see!

    Was it actually not very popular Ven?

    I only ask because I thought the podcast as it was was always entertaining. Like Tom B and Bertie, Donalon etc all have very distinct personalities which are entertaining to listen to.

    The sort of lack of seriousness of it is what made it good, for me anyway.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    I think it probably punched below its weight given the size of the site overall. I don't necessarily think that means it's not worth doing though.

    Ah I see what you mean, but I still think that's why it was good :D

    I suppose you could have the new whizzbang format and then secretly continue the 'after hours', just with less dolphin sex.

    You could move it more towards a Giantbomb cast type format? A bit longer and less structured?

    I really miss it! Don't do away with it, of course it'd be better if it was every week, but if you had to cut it down to monthly or fortnightly to make it worthwhile, it'd still be good.

    Alright. I'm back with a Giantbomb podcast review. Here we go:
    It's too long, too boring, not funny, mostly crap. Will not listen to another episode of that bloated stupidity.

    Gameological on the other hand put out a new episode and it was freaking awesome like always. Ellie Gibson of Eurogamer FAME was in it once again and yeah, good show!

    Missing the podcast terribly. All the other gamesites casts seem to be totally obnoxious.

    I just want some thoughtful, gently amusing chat about games.
